Silicone implants have been FDA-approved for six months in the U.S., and we now know they are chosen nine of out ten times by women seeking first-time breast augmentation. The incision for a silicone implant is somewhat larger than needed for a saline-filled breast implant. The cost across the country varies from $1,000 to $2,000 more for silicone implants and for surgery to place them. Women who currently have saline implants are not flocking to their doctors to replace those implants, but women who have been unhappy with saline implants are seeking out new options.

Here’s what you need to do if you’re thinking about silicone versus saline. Find a doctor who has experience and offers both implants. Hold them, feel them and place them near your body. Discuss the incision, placement and size options, and discuss your obligations as a patient before you make a decision. Then, make your decision based on the value judgment right for you.
